Whether you’re going out for an elegant dinner with your significant other, a night on the town with your girls or braving a first date – Valentine’s Day is always one of our favorite beauty days. Hues of pink, red and white take the stage as we transform from work to evening. Looking for an easy, yet gorgeous look? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with these easy Valentine’s Day looks.
Look #1: Elegant Evening Out
Hair: Sleek pulled back pony or sleek and straight. We suggest using a smoothing balm to calm flyaways and impose high shine like AG Hair Smoothing Balm. In addition, the right hairbrush is key. Use a sculpting brush like Cricket Static Free Sculpting Brush 680 to help tame flyaways.
Makeup: Make a move toward sultry red lips and a light, smoky eye. Some of our favorites to achieve this look: Sorme Perfect Performance Lip Color in Glamour Red, Sorme Smearproof Eyeliner in Charcoal and theBalm NUDE ‘tude® Naughty Eyeshadow Palette.
Nails: Firey Red. Our favorite: Morgan Taylor Lacquer Fire Cracker.
Look #2: Girl Next Door
Hair: Create undone curls; not un-styled so much as fallen beach waves. We suggest creating curls with a straightener like this Rusk W8Less Str8 Iron 1″. Then, lock them in place with a playful hairspray like Joico Gold Dust Shimmer Finishing Spray. We also love throwing your curled hair up into a sweet ponytail.
Makeup: Stick to neutrals and pale pinks. Some of our favorite products to create this look: theBalm FratBoy Shadow/Blush, Sorme Lip Thick Plumping Gloss in Twinkle and theBalm What’s Your Type? The Body Builder Mascara.
Nails: Keep it soft with a blush pink. Our favorite: CND Vinylux Salmon Run.
Look #3: Galentine’s Day
Hair: For a night out with the girls, channel your inner Kylie Jenner with a textured style. Use an iron like Kardashian Beauty 3-in-1 Hairstyling Iron to create definition and volume. Then, texturize your style with a shaping creme. (Nothing beats Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Shaping Cream.)
Makeup: Think to incorporate colors outside the norm. The perfect starting place? A beautiful plum lip. We’re crazy right now for Sorme Perfect Performance Lip Color in Mauve. Then, make your eyes pop with a dark liner similar to Sorme Jet Liner.
Nails: Go all-white with Morgan Taylor All-White Now. Then, add a chevron of metallic towards the tip (classic gold never fails). Try Morgan Taylor No Way Rose.
